Gas Street Moorings, Birmingham
A while back we had a boat moored by the Hyatt with a lovely couple on board. One of them made things with balloons and one of his party pieces was to make an animal and then "pop" in a couple of coins.
Here is the close up. Pretty neat trick eh?
It is 10cm x 10cm and has a chocolate heart in the middle.
I made it by folding a piece of white card in half and then using the heart die to cut it out making sure that the top overlapped the fold. I then cut another white heart the same size and stuck it on the front of the card so the fold did not show.
Then I cut a smaller heart and ran it through the Cuttlebug to emboss it and coloured in the embossing with a marker pen. This was stuck onto the front, adding the bow and rose and the pink foil covered chocolate heart.
